13 April 2020 by Paratext Editorial

United States Masterfile | USM Product Updates


We have had a tremendous response to our offer of free access to United State Documents Masterfile through June of this year. We’re very happy that we can provide a service that both demystifies government documents and provides full-text access to millions of government publications in this challenging time.

Based on the positive response from libraries, we’re offering a webinar for existing customers of U.S. Documents Masterfile as an added benefit to the library community.

Topics that will be covered:

  • General overview of U.S. Documents Masterfile, features and search strategies.
  • Discussion of how it can be of use to researchers in a variety of fields.

So please plan to join us next Thursday, April 16th, at 1 pm EDT.

The session will be run by Andrea Sevetson, a librarian and authority on government information. Andrea has worked with government documents for over 30 years, having held positions at the University of California, Berkeley; the U.S. Census Bureau; LexisNexis; and ProQuest. She has served in numerous library organizations and has written extensively on the use of government information.

To receive an invitation, send an email to info@paratext.com with the subject line “USDM Webinar 4/16/2020.”

We hope that you will join us for this instructional and helpful session.
